Mediatakeout released photos of Kerry Rhodes on vacation with a buddy and implied that they were lovers. There has been a lot of conversation lately about which Gay NFL players would come out of the closet, so this created a lot of buzz. MTO didn’t have any evidence backing up their claims, so in my mind it was much to do about nothing. Doesn’t matter if Rhodes is gay or not, it is his choice if he wanted to come out. But, it caused enough of a buzz, for Rhodes to address the situation. “Photos have been circulating of my former assistant and I that have caused some rumors regarding my sexuality, and I wanted to address the situation.” Rhodes then says flatly, “I am not gay.” Rhodes explains: “The shots were taken during a past vacation in a casual environment with my entire business team.” Could Rhodes be lying? Of course, but as I stated before it is his decision to make. I give people the benefit of the doubt, if he says he isn’t gay, that is good enough for me. I would hope he doesn’t feel pressure to lie if he isn’t, because honestly it shouldn’t matter what his sexuality is one way or another, consider he still is an average at best safety. That isn’t going to change regardless if he is straight or gay.
